Step 1: Punch circles out.
Use your craft punch to cut circles from your sheet of labels and pretty paper. Since my craft punch only reaches so far, I found it easiest to tear the label sheet into three separate sheets along the existing perforations and punch one circle from each side of the label. I didn't count, but I think I punched about 20 or 30 circles for each labels and pretty paper. That's your "confetti"! Fun, huh?
Step 2: Cut string to your banner's desired length (or wait until the end to see how long you want it - it's up to you).
I used some green and white baker's twine for mine, but any string works.
Step 3: Attach the circles to the string using one label circle and one pretty paper circle.
Take one of your label circles and peel the backing off (this can take some patience if you don't have fingernails to help you out!). Stick the center of the label to the string.
Take the pretty paper circle and stick it right onto the label (see? no glue, tape or sewing here!). Think of this as a sandwich. The two circles are the bread and the string is the good stuff in the middle.
Step 4: Repeat step three until you've added enough circles (confetti!) to make your little banner complete.
Hint: To evenly space your circles, use a note card or piece of paper as a spacer. That way there's no measuring - phew! Math has never been my strong suit.
Step 5: Hang up your banner and enjoy it!
I like it doubled or tripled up - so pretty. I think it would be perfect party decor, or you could even hang it as a mobile in a baby's room.
And just in case you'd like some handy, Pinterest-ready shorthand instructions, I made a little step-by-step "how to make a confetti banner" guide with photos. (Hover your mouse over the photo and click the little "P" icon to pin it.)
Anyone else out there have a creative itch? I know I can't be the only one.
Have a great weekend!
